What do you want to do after high school?

Go into advertising for movies/TV shows and the like. At the very least, something related to entertainment!

Who or what helped you make that plan?

My internship with VPS Game Time helped me learn what goes into video production and gave me a deeper appreciation for it. I watch a lot of YouTube videos talking about movies and filmography, and it’s quickly becoming a major passion of mine. Also, iTech is a great environment that encourages me to pursue and be proud of my interests.

What advice would you give to a friend or classmate who is trying to decide what they want to do after they graduate?

You have a whole life ahead of you to figure out what you want to do with yourself. Don’t compromise your passions, but also make sure to be realistic. What can you envision yourself doing? What are you good at? Find a job that can maximize your skills, talents and interests while also being at least somewhat lucrative.
